Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching - Forbes

Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching - Forbes | college and career ready | Scoop.it

 

Douglas Riddle shares: 

 

Mindful coaches perfect a form of conscious and comfortable simultaneous attention to themselves, their coachee, the relationship between them, and the mental, emotional, and relational dynamics occurring in the moment. There are three aspects of mindfulness that have particular pertinence to leadership coaching:

1)      an empty mind

2)      non-reactivity

3)      permissive attention

As a Vistage Chair, 27 years in June,  it is about learning to listen, quieting my own thoughts, and asking questions that allow both the person I'm working with and myself to learn something new. We are mysteries that will never be totally known, no matter how long we delve.  We are back to Lee Thayer's: Thinking influences who I am and the habits I cultive. And who I am shows itself in what I do and don't do.  It all starts with how I think. Get that right and life becomes an amazing journey of discovery and creatiity.  If you want to know the future, create it.


It is about being the crucible that if dropped would shatter and at the same time is able to hold molten metal allowing the slag and dross to be cleared away. In communication we share one thing:  our humanity.

Mindful organisation = more emotionally intelligent organisation.

ThinDifference's curator insight, February 9, 2013 3:56 PM

At times, mindfulness sounds like something for "new age" organizations, yet read this:

 

"Many companies such as Raytheon, Proctor and Gamble, Google, eBay, Apple, General Mills, the U.S. Military and scores of others have implemented mindfulness meditation programs for employees and the participants have reported a positive change in work capacity, stress management, relationships, reduced absenteeism and reduced health costs."

 

Many organizations mentioned here are ones to be considered necessarily new age. Mindfulness creates better leaders and organizations.

Schools should be mindful places.  In my experience they rarely are.  What can a teacher do? Create a mindful classroom!

Some consultants tell me that the number one problem in the workplace today is attention. People are distracted. They're in a state of what's called "continuous partial attention" where

It takes more and more energy to focus due to the increase in speed and amount of information we receive everyday. Unlesss you live in a cave or an island without connnection, distraction is unavoidable. 

 

Even if we are very good at practicing mindfullness meditation, it is like a red light. it works to stop you in the moment...until the ligh turns green again.

 

I am always annoyed when people use the term "ADD" to describe a lack of concentration. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a medical disorder describe in the DSM IV book. It is described as a neurological condition or a kind of immaturity of the brain, that can be corrected with medication mostly stimulants. Medication is only working when you take it. When you stop you still have ADD and its symptoms come back right away. That is the only common thing between meditation and medication !

Are you ever in a state of continuous partial attention?  Read here to have a deeper understanding of how to combat this.
